Today I had a user asking me to explain in simple terms why does the rich client performance drops in a 4-Tier across WAN. If i have the Application and Web Servers in Site A, then why is 4T Rich Client afster in SiteA than for a user in SiteB who is few thousand Kms apart. I know the answer is latency, but he was probing further as to how latency is causing the slowness when we use the same thin client link. My answer was that the response recieved from server was faster in LAN Vs WAN...but it made me re-think to get a much clearer answer to convince him. Any one has better answers to this?
Also why is a thin client faster than thick (rich) client if done from Site B?
The question is very naive - but i prefer to get my thoughts clarified and clear.
